Lately, I’ve been really interested in getting a cat (or kitten). Even thinking about it drives me crazy. There are so many things to think about
Which is the right breed for me?
How will I know which cat is right for me?
Should I get a cat or a kitten?
Should I get it from an animal rescue, pet store, or breeder?
Should I get a domestic or purebred?
How will I know what type of personality the cat has?
If I get a kitten, how will I know how it’s going to look when it gets older?
What is the best age to get the cat at?
Should I get a male or female?
And of course, the if’s are even worse:
What if the cat isn’t at all personable and just doesn’t bond?
What if the cat has a lot of health problems?
What if the cat has behavioral issues like peeing in places, spraying, being overly aggressive?
What if the cat is dysfunctional, or has a disease?
What if the cat had a bad history, or was separated from it’s mother to soon?
The only thing I’m sure of right now is that I want it to be a short haired, neutered or spayed, not de-clawed and an indoor cat.
Sorry to think about all the negative things and the what if’s. Even though any of those could happen, I realize that chances of them happening are probably small and I’m just being over worried.
I was told that I will know the cat that is for me when I see it, is this true?
Thanks for an advice or suggestions anyone could lend me!
